You thought he could act based on his more popular works at the time in:
Not Another Teen Movie
Fantastic Four 1 and 2
Let's be really honest. Because I didn't think Evans would work. I didn't think Ledger would work. And then, they both nailed the roles.
I also don't think Chestnut would work but I've been very wrong twice before.
I doubt if my posts from that time can be found, but I was on board with Evans when he was announced as a candidate for the role. The man can act. He stood out in all those movies you named and I noticed his performances in movies like London and Sunshine as well.
